magnolias snipSTEEL MAGNOLIAS
Show dates: May 12-21, 2017
Audition dates: March 20 & 21 | 6:30 PM
Director: Linda Sturdivant

A comedy/drama by Robert Harling. Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters “…a skillfully crafted, lovingly evoked picture of eccentricity in the small-town South.” —Drama-Logue

Auditions will consist of cold reads from the script. A good Southern accent will be a plus. Casting 6 women:
Truvy Jones / 35 -45 | Owns the beauty shop. Vivacious. Dispenses advice with lots of hairspray.
Annelle Dupup Desoto / 18 – 24 | Newly hired assistant. Moves from unsure to wild to religious.
Clairee Belcher / 55 to late 60’s | Widow of former mayor. Grand dame. Elegant, sophisticated, a true beauty.
Shelby Eatenton Latcherie / 19 | Prettiest girl in town. Loves pink. Strong willed, passionate.
M’Lynn Eatenton / 40 to 50’s | Shelby’s mother. Always knows what’s best, strong, stubborn, the heart of the piece.
Ouiser (pronounced Weezer) Boudreaux / 55 to late 60’s | Wealthy curmudgeon. Tough, Eccentric character.

Children’s Auditions
We understand that for a lot of children they may not have auditioned much if at all before. Here is what we are expecting: They should come prepared to sing a short piece from something they know well. It is very helpful if they bring their own sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. A Capella and karaoke auditions are discouraged. There will also be a dance audition. They should be dressed comfortably. They do not need to have a dance background, but be ready to try out new things and to have some fun.

Adult Auditions
Auditioners should come prepared to sing 35 bars of a musical theater piece. Please bring your own sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Be prepared for a dance audition.
